# Imagine I'm on a spacecraft that was accelerated to 1.0$c$ could I only move backwards? [duplicate]

Imagine I'm in a sapcecraft1 that is moving with 1.0$c$ or at least is so close to that speed that a few miles per hour would just be left to reach $c$.

So when I'm traveling now in the direction this thing moves, what would hapen? Would I forcefully be unable to move in that direction, so this thing would be like a rattrap while it is moving at that speed?

Or would I be able to catch up with bypassing lightwaves?

1This could be a planet, a man made thing a star or what ever would be most reasonable here.
